Plantwise Diagnostic Field Guide

The Plantwise Diagnostic Field Guide has been designed to help plant doctors and other agricultural advisors diagnose plant health problems before making management recommendations.

The guide provides images and descriptions of many typical symptoms associated with factors that harm plant health. It also includes ‘ready reckoners’ - simple information tables for quick and easy reference - that serve as reminders of symptom-cause associations and can therefore assist in diagnosing plant health problems.

The publication will help plant health advisors to make diagnoses by showing the relationships between common symptoms on plants and the various possible causes. The guide also provides a short overview of the important principles for giving good advice, which are underpinned by an integrated pest management approach.
